A person's own name is the single most important word to a person. Their name is intimately tied to their identity as an individual. In many ways it defines who we are.

Accurately remembering names is one of the simplest yet most important components of interacting with people. It is a common trait that people who get things done and have a great life, recognize the importance of other people. A key step to recognising the importance of others is using their name.

However, remembering names and faces can be a big challenge for many people. Not being able to remember names makes it harder to make new friends and maintain business relationships. It can be both personally and financially costly to not remember a person’s name.

People who can remember names, develop better personal relationships with others. We are more likely to trust someone we know and think of them as a friend. When someone remembers our name, the very thought that we are remembered gives us happiness and satisfaction. As a result we quickly build a relationship of trust with that person.

The secret to a happy fulfilling and successful life starts with how we relate to other people. Remembering a person’s name is the key building block to positive and trusting relationships with other people.

Remembering another person’s name is actually simple when you know how. This course is designed to teach you the skills so you can quickly and easily remember the names of people you have just met.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who has believed they were not good are remembering names and faces
  • People who want to succeed more in life and business
  • People that want to build closer relationships with others
  • Anyone that wants to build more trusting relationships with other people

Remembering Professions, Meanings and Exotics

The key to maintain motivation with learning is to keep it fun and focus on what you really want.

When learning something new focus on learning the habit of the new process first. That should be your sole aim at the start. Do the behaviours. If you get it right or wrong doesn't matter at this point. Do the behaviours. Then when the behaviours become automatic, when you are just doing them as part of your everyday life, then switch to improving your hit rate.

In the end if you don't swing you'll never get a hit. You need to make your goal at the start to practice the process of the skill your focus. Congratulate yourself that you did the process regardless of if you got it right or wrong. You'll feel good that you did the process. This way you will stay motivated and keep doing it. Then when you a swinging the bat regularly then switch your focus to how many balls you hit.

Learning this way you'll keep it fun for you and thus learn faster and enjoy it more.
